Description

Originally performed only within the temples, Classical Indian Dance is a holistic practice integrating physical movements, music and theatre. Typical characteristics are a strong and stable lower body that supports a graceful and fluid upper body moving in Figure 8 patterns. These movements are very complementary to alignment principles in asana practice, and working in this way yields several benefits to overall grounding and stability, lower body strength, body awareness, creativity and poise.

This class is suitable for anyone who would like to learn dance-based movement techniques to enhance their yoga practice, or gain a deeper insight into aspects of Indian performing arts.

Included in the 3-hour class:

Performance of Classical Indian Dance & overview of its origin and history

Movement techniques that balance strength and stability with fluidity. A guided practice will systematically work through the entire body from major muscle groups right through to fingertips and facial muscles.

Practice of flowing sequences in classical and contemporary forms of expression

Exposure to Indian music and rhythmic elements as part of the movement sequences

Time: Saturday 11th October at 2-5pm

Location: Ihana Yoga St Kilda, Level 1, 82 Acland St
